An excellent Italian restaurant with magnificent decoration and fresh well cooked dishes. I'm looking forward to my next opportunity to dine there again!

Delicious food, creative presentation, comfortable and spacious, warm and welcoming servers, nice music, sophisticated vibe and not overly expensive given the outstanding quality. Definitely one of the best dining experiences ever.

Visited with a large group, no booking but very accommodating. Food was great, rich pasta sauces and ideal portion sizes. Service was attentive without being insistent. Complementary desert wine and truffles to end the evening.

Beautiful, stylish restaurant built on the old Kastelli wall in the wonderful, picturesque Venetian harbour of Chania. Established in 1993, Kariatis enjoys an excellent reputation for top quality food and service with an impressive menu created and served with proficiency and flair. Imaginative and refreshingly different dishes inspired by flavoursome, colourful, aromatic ingredients from both Crete and Italy offering an appetizing assortment of Italian and Mediterranean dishes and delicious gourmet desserts. Also serves fresh filleted fish dishes including sea bass, salmon and tuna and lots of luscious seafood pasta and risotto dishes. During the winter months we will be seducing sushi lovers with our sensational sushi. Kariatis also offers an extensive selection of award-winning Greek and International wines from around the world.
